johnnyonthespot "Can all of you ultra right wing rhetoric mud slingers explain to me again the evils of socialism?"

it would be convenient to have an authority explain this to us but even experts disagree on the definition. a one word label for such a broad concept is unsatisfactory.

if you read Ayn Rands' "Atlas Shrugged", perhaps she can convince you of the evils of socialism.

on the other hand try Jack London (an avowed socialist) and read "Under the Iron Heel". the story centers on a fight against a fascist US government. wait, isn't fascism a form of socialism (as national socialism)? I'm confused.

also for socialist propaganda read "the Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. the story exposed the dreadful conditions in turn of the century Chicago meat packing plants. Sinclair wrote of the book "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach"

Yeah...look at what Big Brother's done in keeping the black man & minorities down. Then to be used as a voting block. The Republicans, but especially the Democrats have pushed for "entitlements" to all sorts of folks who need to get off their lazy asses. Put down the crack pipe, quit reproducing unless you can afford to-on your own.
And WORK. However Democrats create and rely on an agitated voting mass to push their socialist agenda. Nuts & flakes & bums that permeate places like San Francisco should be in a circus freakshow (or mental hospitals-really!)

I'm glad Obama & McCain at least support traditional marrige-though I think Obama's lying on that.

I could go on a rant about the drooling masses who watch TV and it's inane reality shows and other garbage.
But i won't this time (your welcome) Now go, take on the day!
